    I emailed them today and they told me they haven't seen a single 59XX series since launch day. Either my guy didn't know what he was talking about or they JUST got them in, congrats either way I pre-ordered in September and still waiting....
    I mean I want to call BS on this simply because you are claiming to have gotten a response.

    I am still waiting to hear on my 5800x and 3070. I got about 2 weeks before I want to finish my build, I am hoping they come in before then.

    Haha, believe me it was a surprise. It was the SE location too which makes it even more surprising. The reply was one line with zero punctuation, greeting, or signature, which was still more than I was expecting.

    Do any of you guys use support brackets for your GPU? My 3080 is bowing down a bit in the middle of the board and metal backing.

    Always a good idea to use one, especially if it's visibly bowing. The socket can probably handle it, especially on a high end board, but I personally don't like it as it can't be good long-term. GPUs are way bigger than they used to be these days.

    I always use all of the case mounted screws that the GPU comes with, and try to bend it up a bit and tighten the crap out of them. But otherwise I don't put any additional brackets on since the card wasn't designed for it.

    Anyone have a recommendation on an SSD-somewhere around 250 to 500GB? Turns out my Crucial M500 is over it's rated TBW...
    Have my eye on a Sabrent Rocket 4 right now.
    Usage is just to go into my Plex/Surveillance server.

    They are a tad more, but after years or replacing supposedly reliable Intel drives, I switched to Samsung and haven't had to replace one yet, and I've got at least 4 well past the 5 year warranty.

    I didn't compare them all, but the SATA 860 evo is $45 off right now, so $75 for a 500 GB at Mem Ex.

    If it's just for storage, get whatever Samsung 850/860 or Crucial MX500 is on sale at the moment. I picked up a 2TB MX500 for $170 a while ago, and if you're shopping in the 250-500GB range they are extremely cheap.

    Paying up for PCI 4.0 isn't going to be noticeable for your listed usage, I wouldn't bother with the Rocket 4 personally.

    Samsung's "Pro" drives are rated for much higher endurance but they are expensive so it might still be more cost effective to churn cheap drives.

    Thanks guys. Only reason I wanted a m.2 form factor was so that I could free up another SATA port for when I need it in the future.

    Edit: It's been a while, MLC>TLC? Or is it the other way around?

    Yeah, no issues with my 3080 either.

    Well, after helping others to get video cards, now that it is time to build my PC this weekend, I can't find shit.

    Anyone able to help me out? If you get a call from MemX or whatever saying your reservation is available and you don't want it anymore, please, let me know, I will take it. Any of the 30 series or AMD 5800 series.

    Hell, I will even take a 2080 for a REASONABLE price.

    Same here, Chris.

    I went to MemEx over the weekend and put my name down for an ASUS TUF 3060ti. They told me there's 7 people on the waitlist so I hope it's not a long wait.

    Pure impulse buy and I'm not even sure I need it. If I end up not buying it, I'll send you a PM. Fuck them scalpers.

    Thanks, dude! I would appreciate it.

    I am just kinda bummed. This is my first build in like 20 years and I am super excited for it, and I can't even get the parts, even with ordering stuff in advance. Grrrr! Talk about a buzzkill.

    I dropped by MemEx NE two weekends ago and they got nothing. They checked my line up for a 3070 at NW and said I might get a call if that model comes in. He didn’t say what position I’m in for that card. Maybe he was just being nice to give me some hope.
